Natural ways to achieve glowing skin

skin Are you looking for the secret to flawless, glowing skin? Well, you may assume that in order to achieve the perfect skin you have to be prepared to spend some serious money on filling your shelves with countless expensive products. After all, the global cosmetics and skin care market is predicted to be worth over $805.61 billion by 2023. But there are natural ways you can achieve glowing skin without spending hundreds of dollars.

Invest in local skin care products for a natural glow

New Zealand may be known for its expansive natural beauty and stunning landscape. But it is also home to a wonderful variety of animals, plants and ingredients that can be used in cosmetics and skin care. Manuka honey is just one example of a natural ingredient used in skin care products. Widely thought to contain healing properties, the honey comes from the nectar of manuka trees which grow exclusively in Australia and New Zealand.

Keep your body hydrated and your skin refreshed

One of the most simple and natural ways to achieve beautiful clear and glowing skin is to make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Dehydration can have a significant impact, even causing dry crepey skin and premature aging. However, water will help to clear the toxins that can cause blemishes and skin inflammation. It can also help to transport oxygen and nutrients to skin cells. It’s recommended that you drink at least 8 glasses of water each and every day and more if you are particularly active or live in a warmer climate.

Protect your skin from the sun

Did you know that sunscreen is one of the most important skin care and beauty products you own? In fact, using sunscreen every day is one of the easiest and simplest ways to prolong healthy, youthful and glowing skin. Most wrinkles come from sun exposure, and it’s much easier to prevent the damage rather than trying to correct it once the wrinkles are there. You should wear sunscreen all year round, even through the harshest of winters. Rays are just as strong during winter.

Rejuvenate your skin with a good night sleep

Sleep deprivation lowers circulation and can make the skin look pale and washed out. It’s also the ideal time to rejuvenate the skin as the body’s cellular renewal gets to work. At least seven hours a night is ideal to achieve fresh, glowing skin. After all, it is called beauty sleep for a reason.

Achieving beautiful, glowing skin is easier than you think. Just by using sunscreen every day, getting plenty of sleep and keeping hydrated can make a huge difference to the health and appearance of your skin.
